  • Cheese Wax

    Cheese wax is used to seal in mushroom plugs once the log has been inoculated with mushroom plug spawn. Cheese Wax can be dripped on or applied with a small foam brush, baster, cotton daubers or other such applicators.  Organic. One pound of cheese wax will cover 8 - 16 logs @ 30 plugs per log. 1. Hammer/Tap the plugs into the holes in your logs. 2. Cover the plugs with the cheese wax. To do this, melt the Cheese Wax in a pan which can be maintained at 300 F. An electric frying pan with a thermostat control works well for this. If inoculating away from electricity, using a camp stove, make sure that the cheese wax is hot when you apply it; otherwise, the wax will not create a tight seal and can easily fall off. Cheese Wax sticks to the log and remains pliable even in coldest weather.

It also acts as a cardio tonic by lowering serum and increasing the production of interleukin 1 and 2, which results in inhibition of tumor cholesterol, expectorant, anti-tissue, liver protecting and detoxifying, protection against ionizing radiation, antibacterial, and anti-HIV activity.
